Air pollution warnings about corporate greed

Duncan – I would like to respond to the recent articles in the Citizen, and Eleanor Setton’s concerns in regards to woodsmoke, and the use of woodstoves in the Cowichan Valley.

If the B.C. Ministry of Environment would like to go further or dig a lot deeper into the health and welfare of its citizens, then woodstoves would just be amongst a very large list of things that are extremely harmful to our environment and the well being of its citizens.

David Suzuki just recently provided us with articles on the harms of geoengineering. Geoengineering activity has been going on for decades and polluting our atmosphere. This information has been hidden from the greater public.

The Cowichan Valley has just been through two large power outages in the last several weeks. The only thing that is guaranteed in a power outage is the woodstove. Along with climate change, how will most of us cope when we lose power, possibly for extremely long periods of time?

I believe this “great concern” that the Ministry of Environment suddenly has for us is to be completely reliant on Hydro and other sources of heat. We then have no control or are self reliant in any way, and our bills just keeping going up each year.

Our neighbour blows marijuana over our fence all day long. My children and I are told that there are no laws in effect to control this. I doubt very much the B.C. government will look into the effects of this any time soon. Woodstoves have been around for centuries. This is distraction by big corporations that are brainswashing us into believing that the woodstove is our enemy. This is still about misinformation and corporate greed.
